Calculate the pH, pOH, and percentage protonation of solute in each of the following aqueous solutions: a) 0.057 M NH3; b) 0.162 M NH2OH; c) 0.35 M (CH3)3N; d) 0.0073 M codeine, given that pKa of its conjugate acid is 8.21.

I'm confused on how exactly to do this problem. Are we supposed to have K values memorized?

I believe for (a)-(c), there is a table in the relevant section of the textbook that has the Kb values of common weak bases. If you look at the solutions manual, there are no calculations made for Kb, which seems to indicate that they assumed Kb was meant to be given for the problem.

Yes the instructions for this section of problems tell you to look at their tables for equilibrium values.
